Lockhart Hospital

Year: 1900

This old photograph of the Lockhart Hospital was posted c. 1900 as the message is on the front of the card. Many would think that this was the William Smellie hospital. However, this building acquired that name post-war when it became a maternity hospital.

The building that we now know as the Lockhart was actually a fever hospital. This was a time when there were plenty of beds for ill people in Lanark. Next door to the fever hospital was the Lady Hozier recuperative hospital.
